In the first degree murder case of William Otis Bryant, in Raleigh, the jury could not reach a verdict and a mistrial was declared today. Mr. Bryant was charged in the shooting death of a cab driver. If convicted, he could receive a life sentence without possibility of parole. Read more here.

Mr. Bryant gained some notoriety a few months back when DOC accidentally released him. (See here). Mr. Bryant's bond was reduced to $200,000 and he awaits a new trial.

Are there any updates on this case, for either of the brothers charged with the Jaboin murder? Any idea when trials will begin?

The case was dismissed back in February 2012.
